    A titty-bit nipply hereabouts, currently at 15 on the Farenheit scale, predicted low, -1° F.

    Still considering Cliffs of Dover Battle of Britain?

    Gameplay? Shee-oot, I think that term was ostracized `round the turn of the century. Make it pretty, yet vapid, has been the developer's credo since 2000 or so...

    Spell Checker?

    Yup, nailed it your ownself. IE8 and lower don;t have spell-check, FireFox from 2.0 has it. I think they are above Version 8 in IE, but haven't tried them. Dunno `bout Google Chrome either, as it gave be a bad time in Beta, so haven't been back, but have heard it is better now. Dunno if it does spell-check, worth a look?

    That is the one thing I've railed against for a few years, the terrain looks, frankly, like a$$. The aircraft look good, and there are some third party freeware aircraft and terrains that improve things, but it still looks pretty dated. In getting into A-10C lately, and popping back to the Thirdwire series, the difference is glaring. I had hoped the SF2 series would be a rebuild, but is only gives better Win7/Vista compatibility...

    I thought I was tuned into the Thirdwire series world pretty well through CombatAce.com, but I didn't see this coming. Does look too shabby at all...

    EA's Frank Gibeau sticks his foot in his mouth

    Did you know that 99% of all published statistics are made up on the spot? Seriously though, the pirating claims over the years have been WAY overblown, IMHO. And if SP gaming is dead, EA had a large hand in killing it. Now, off I trot to read what I bet is an amusing/annoying missive...

    THIS is a Merry Christmas?

    I agree. Most sane people that I know avoid Black Friday like the plague, to avoid the inherent insanity...

    DCS A-10C Warthog and Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog reviews

    THE MiGMan stopped by to comment? I am honored, sir. Been loving your site for a lot of years, and flown the majority listed therein. Get that awesome rig, brotha, these two are well worth the investment...

    They've already got their guns, were mulling over knives, so why not video games? It is good for the sheeple. All for the greater good, don't ya know?

    New rifle deploys

    I'd seen snippets about it during development, and it doe look impressive. I had originally thought it to be a replacement for all small-arms, but now see it is to be a specialized mortarman type of arrangement. I wouldn't want to be the guy hoofing around the 12 pound pig, and likely heavy ammo, but if needed, it should rock and roll. I wonder if I can get a review copy to report back on?

    The Ice Lord

    I tend to agree. Evil this, overlord that, it does get a bit tedious after a few run throughs, ya know? But it could be worse, I s'pose...

    So, whose the brave soul whose going to try out the Apache sim/game? I've been itching to get another run in a longbow Apache, but not as a shooter in the air, and especially not at 50 bones! Who ia gonna take one for the team, eh? Besides, i am too occupied with the double-teaming of DCS A-10C and HOTAS Warthog...

    Curses, foiled again! Never with the hot and fancies with the tufted ear suits. Ah, well, there is always next time...
